Mike Rowe of 'Dirty Jobs' Gets Sued by Inmate Over Name
Mike Rowe has been slapped with a lawsuit because of his name. According to TMZ, the "Dirty Jobs" host is being sued by an inmate at a South Dakota prison who shared the same name, claiming that the 49-year-old has no right to use the name because he has copyrighted it earlier this year.
In the documents, the prisoner who serves time in jail for a DUI-related offense also noted that the name makes him a subject of jokes behind bars. "I can't live here in prison without being called Dirty Jobs or ... Dirtiest Man," so he complained. "I am subject to this ridicule every day that I live."
On the copyright issue, the inmate said he has problems with the TV personality's endorsements. "Lee Jeans states Mike Rowe wears Lee Jeans or [is] for them. I do not wear nor have ever worn Lee Jeans and further, I am not for them," he stated before claiming he's also not a fan of Viva Towels.
